           Summary: Keyboard layout makes /dev/pts/n go away, and xm crash
           Product: Xen
           Version: 3.0.0
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: Tools
        AssignedTo: xen-bugs@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
        ReportedBy: chapeaurouge@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Ok, this is an odd one.

(with French keyboard layout)
- I start a domain with the -c option. 
- I login to my domU
- I try to exit back to dom0 ( Ctrl-Altgr-] ). It won't do it. STill in domU.
- I log out using the exit statement. I am back on my domU login prompt.
- I try to exit back to dom0 ( Ctrl-Altgr-] ). I am out, now in Dom0.
- I try to get back into the domU using 'xm console 2'
=> error: Cannot open /dev/pts/2: file or directory doesn't exist. Yep, getting 
out with the french keyboard/layout as noted above has a side-effect of 
the /dev/pts/n character file...

- Try to shutdown the domU => becomes zombie
- try to restart the same domU => fails
=> only solution (to me) is to reboot the entire system...

Note that using the US layout (with the same french keyboard), hence just 'Ctrl
-]' works perfectly fine... It seems the keyboard layout is faulty here.

Isn't it an obscure one, hobby one? =]
